Explore the Galaxies of Imagination this summer!

The Summer Reading Programme is back at the Living Room of the City! Our popular Summer Reading Programme is returning although a little different due to Covid-19!

This programme promotes the enjoyment of reading for children aged 4 – 10 years over summer for readers of all abilities.

This year our programme moves online but still has the same incentive based factors to reward reading over summer.
